Whatever currency you take, cash it in Bali, not before you leave.

Have you considered just withdrawing Rupiah from ATMs once you arrive?

I wouldn't advise converting rupees to US dollars and then into rupiah as you will end up losing each time you convert from one currency to another. And if you have any left over, you will lose out again when you try to change them back to rupee.

I am sure the banks and money changers in Bali will be able to change your rupee to IDR. And, as stated above, you can also use your cards to withdraw IDR from ATMs.

What I'm less sure about is whether you can pay for your Visa on Arrival at the airport in rupees. Perhaps some other Indian travellers can answer this question?

I seem to recall reading somewhere that you have a 10000 rupee limit per person on the amount of rupees you can leave India with in cash (this equates to around $165). Even if you find a money changer who will change rupees (not one of the major currencies you see on money changers boards), this won't get you far.

So in your situation, it would probably be better financially to use your ATM card rather than converting rupee to USD to IDR, but check with your bank for any fees they charge for using your ATM card abroad.
